Promises, promises.............

Labour promised a referendum on the EU Treaty. Admittedly that was when Blair had one arm firmly placed up his backbone by public opinion. Now the spin merchants of Gordon Brown's entourage are dissembling like crazy. They say the "Treaty" is nothing like the "Constitution". Are there fairies at the bottom of the garden at No.10?

If the leaders of the major countries in the EU say there is not much difference, why do our fatuous leaders gainsay them? Angela Merkel reckons there's only a 5% difference in the wording! Was that why she was looking at her watch during the football friendly the other night? Gordon Bean getting her down?

Thankfully some Labour MPs are seeing sense. Even that ardent European Union crawler, Keith Vaz, is considering the matter. Now around 120 Labour MPs are likely to press for a refereundum. In all fairness, it's the only thing to do.

For all those wanting to say it out loud there's a Pro Referendum Rally. Let's hope Brown's got his antennae tuned to the right direction that day!

Pro Referendum Rally
